Hiking: Hikes in Emmental

From Lucerne to Berne

The region Emmental is a lovely area: in between the well-known cities Lucerne and Berne meadows and soft hills build a beautiful contrast to the rough peaks of the Swiss Alps.

Over small hills the paths lead away from the hectical city life of Lucerne to the “Napf”, the highest peak in the Emmental. You walk past farms and idyllic villages and along small rivers through silent valleys. At the end of your journey you reach the city Berne, Switzerlands capital.

Itinerary

Hotel (example): Hotel Fox

Over a small hill you make your way out of the city center of Lucerne. Soon you reach the banks of “Kleine Emme”, a small river that leads your way to the monastery Werthenstein, a famous pilgrimage spot. From here Wolhusen is in short walking distance.

Hotel (example): Hotel Rebstock

179–445 m

After a short walk you reach the “Wiggerewald”, a small forest. Here you walk through a pristine valley. Keep your eyes open, gold could be found in the Emmental for some time and maybe it is not only the sun that is sparkling in the quiet rivers.

When reaching “Bärrüti” a small path brings you to the Alpine panorama route, from where you have nice views on the adjacent alpine peaks.

Today the most impresive part of your hike awaits you. With 1408 meters the “Napf” is the highest peak in the Emmental.

From its top you have a wonderful view, but you have to manage the strenuous uphill first. On top of the hill you may take a break in a small restaurant before walking down to Lüderenalp.

E. you'll pass Trubschachen - one of the most beautiful places in the whole region. Langnau is famous for producing the famous "Emmental" cheese. You will find many big farms there.

Characteristic

Easy hikes through the hills of the Emmental. The trails are in a good condition and it’s easy to walk them but many small up- and downhills and some longer distances require good health.
